Potential Cash App Fraud On Your Account

When Cash App suspects unusual payments and transactions, there's a chance that they'll keep your payment pending for this reason to prevent scams and illegal activities.

You can prevent this problem by making sure that all of your Cash App account info is accurate and making sure that the person you're receiving/sending money from is using a real account.

Auto Deposit Takes Time To Go Through

Auto deposit from your work or anything, in general, can cause your Cash App money to show "Pending." When you're in this situation, keep in mind that you'll be fine.

Why Is My Direct Deposit Pending On Cash App?

  • Cash App needs time to go through a process of confirmations before releasing your money to become available.

It can take at least several days. I wouldn't suggest sending a support ticket for this reason because there's no way to increase the pending time.

Other Suspicious Activities

With the two main reasons in mind, Cash App may suspect other usual activities from your account or from the person you're receiving/sending to. This makes sense because the number of people creating fake Cash App accounts is rising as Cash App becomes more and more used.
